Recipe: Raw Choc Almond Bites

IMG_1137-e1474414671510.jpg

I'll be honest, using chocolate molds with clean/raw chocolate just isn't working out for me.  The chocolate breaks, gets stuck in the mould and it's messy.  So, to avoid the failed-chocolate-mould mess, I made these chocolate bites, or blobs.. which ever name you prefer.  They're not real pretty, but they sure did taste great.  I did actually make more, however my Dad got to them before I had a chance to photograph them! Ingredients

  • Coconut oil
  • Raw Cacao
  • Coconut Nectar
  • Almond Shaves
  • Desiccated Coconut

Method

My standard chocolate mix method (you can find a detailed description here)

Mix it all together, blob on baking paper and freezer set.

This one is extra great for the kids as its just a handful of ingredients, a bowl, spoon and baking paper.

Paleo Energy Balls These deliscious little snack balls are great for on the go or fun lunchbox additions. Full of fibre and protein, these little snack balls are great snacking items.

Get your hands ready..

1 Handful of Cashews 1 Handful of Almonds 2 Handfuls of Dates 1 Handful of Figs 2 Tbsps of Goji Berries 2 Tbsps of Chia Seeds 3 Tbsps of Coconut 1 Tbsps of Coconut Oil

Using a high powered blender/mixer, blend each dry item into a fine mix and blend together. Chop figs and dates into small pieces and blend into a soft mix.

The key here is to blend (and blend some more) all of the items together.

Melt your coconut oil in the microwave for 30 seconds to a minute (as required).

In your soft mix (figs and dates) gradually add the dry mix, blending as you go. If you find that the mix is not blending as well, add a teaspoon of coconut at a time as this will help combine the ingredients.

If you don't have a mixer, you can do this by hand, by working the dry items through as you go (quite the arm workout!).

Roll into small balls and refrigerate.

Enjoy!
